Despite having lost Josh Hamilton, the Angels currently lead the majors in home runs. This was Trout's fifth bomb of the year, and he's now slashing .317/.369/.650. Apr 16 - 2:28 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in the Angels' 14-2 win over the Mets on Sunday.

Trout started the onslaught with a home run off Bartolo Colon in the first inning. He was hitting .257 heading into the weekend but swatted seven hits in 15 at-bats over the three-game series, raising his average to .320. He's second in the American League in home runs (4) and slugging percentage (.633) through two weeks. Ho hum.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and two RBI in Friday's win over the Astros.

Trout launched a long solo homer in the first inning and drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning. It almost looked like the Astros preferred to walk him in that situation rather than let him swing the bat. Not many hitters get that sort of treatment, but as we have learned over the past two years, Trout is a special case.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer on Opening Day against the Mariners on Monday.

Trout homered off Felix Hernandez in his very first at-bat of the season, because of course he did. The 22-year-old outfielder has been the best player in the world over the past two seasons and his 2014 is already off to a solid start.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Trout celebrated his new six-year contract, which he and the Angels announced at a press conference earlier in the day, by blasting his sixth home run of the spring off Dan Haren in the second inning. Trout finishes spring with a .414 batting average and 17 RBI to go with those six homers. He's locked in with the new season on the horizon, which doesn't bode well for American League pitchers.

The Angels and Mike Trout have agreed to a six-year, $144.5 million contract extension, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.

Well that was fast. Gonzalez reported the two sides were close just minutes earlier, but apparently they were just crossing T's and dotting I's. The $24.1 million average annual value makes Trout the third Angels player, along with Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, to earn $24 million per year on average. It's a nice payday for the 22-year-old pre-arbitration player.
Mar 28 - 10:35 PM

A source tells MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez that the Angels and Mike Trout are finalizing a six-year contract extension worth slightly more than $140 million.

Such a deal would buy out Trout's three years of arbitration and his first three years of free agency. A deal with similar parameters had been discussed earlier this spring. It's fitting that the deal would come shortly after Miguel Cabrera's record-setting extension with the Tigers, as the two have seemingly been linked every step of the way for the past two years. The Angels have yet to confirm that a deal is in place.

Mike Trout had another great day at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double and a two-run home run against the Royals on Thursday.

The homer was Trout's fourth of the spring, and the two-hit outing brought his Cactus League average up to .400. He's ready for the regular season, it seems.

Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with a solo home run against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Trout blasted his third homer of the spring off of Erik Johnson in the fifth inning. Ho-hum, just Mike Trout being Mike Trout.
Mar 19 - 6:38 PM

Mike Trout has vowed to be more aggressive early in the count this year in an effort to cut down on his strikeouts.

As if Trout needed to do anything else to be even better at the plate, he continues to look for ways to improve his game. He whiffed 136 times in 2013 while walking a league-best 110 times. Thus far in Cactus League play, he has fanned only four times in 32 plate appearances.

Mike Trout smashed his second home run of the Cactus League season as the Angels played the Rockies to a 4-4 draw on Saturday.

Trout's solo homer off Juan Nicasio in the fifth inning was his only hit in three at-bats on the afternoon. He's now slashing .433/.469/.800 with a pair of homers and 11 RBI this spring, and looks like the surefire number one selection in most fantasy drafts.
Mar 15 - 9:10 PM

Mike Trout said Thursday that he will not set a deadline for extension talks with the Angels.

The two sides are reportedly discussing a six-year deal in the $150 million range, and Trout said he's willing to keep talking into the regular season if that's what it takes to get something done. "It doesn't matter to me," said Trout. "Nothing bothers me. I go out there and play, man. I don't worry about any of that stuff." Trout is batting .444/.464/.741 with one homer and nine RBI this spring.
Mar 14 - 1:58 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored against the White Sox on Thursday.

Trout tripled and scored in the first. He then singled, stole second base, and scored in the second inning. Trout's Cactus League average is now up to .444 in 27 at-bats.
Mar 13 - 6:36 PM

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with an RBI double as the Angels were defeated by the Mariners 10-6 on Tuesday.

Trout's double came in the second inning, part of a three-run frame for the Halos. He is now hitting .400 in the Cactus League thus far. It's safe to say he'll be in the running for all kinds of hardware at the end of the season and will be selected first overall in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 11 - 7:41 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Mike Trout and the Angels are continuing to discuss a six-year extension and the sides are "maintaining a clear sense of optimism that something will eventually get done."

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan first reported last month that the two sides were discussing a six-year deal in the $150 million range, and Heyman says those are still the parameters. A six-year deal would buy out Trout's first three years of free agency but still allow the outfielder to hit free agency again at the age of 29.
